Our ClampyKate Extra, originally developed as part of our Akerworks VersaSwift product, is a super versatile mount-anywhere single-shaft tensioned Lazy Kate. The 11.5" (292mm) long carbon fiber shaft and aluminum alloy base are both light and strong. The included TensiTamer, our patented rubber tensioning device, allows you to dial in just the right amount of bobbin tension. The adjustable pivot offers 45° angle increment shaft positioning. The ClampyKate can clamp, with non-marring rubber pads, onto any surface up to 2⅛” (54mm) thick: tables, doors, chair backs, whatever!
• chain-plying from a single bobbin
• adding capacity to your existing AkerKate setup
• yarn guiding when plying tricky singles (additional Akerworks TensiTamers may be purchased separately to help with this... and binder clips work great as well)

• supporting your flat pack Akerworks Yarn Caddy while knitting or crocheting. Also available for purchase as a Yarn Caddy and ClampyKate Extra Kit.
• holding additional yarn balls when doing colorwork
